Why does the coolant in my car need changing?
Engine coolant, commonly known as anti-freeze, does degrade with age but under normal conditions you probably won’t need to change the coolant in new models, most late-model vehicles until 100,000 km’s and in some cases 150,000 km’s. Older and aging vehicles require more frequent coolant replacement.
From the time the person who has acquired a qualified driver’s license with an “I” condition on it (interlock) and has an Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device successfully installed on his/her nominated vehicle, he/she needs to be on the program for a term of up to two years. The length of time that a person can be in the program varies whether he/she strictly follows the rules of the program.
When a person has been convicted of an alcohol while driving offence, they may be required to participate in the Alcohol Ignition Interlock Program. You can choose not to participate but you will not be eligible to drive on the road. You can choose not to have an approved Ignition Interlock Device installed on a motor vehicle, but you will only be able to drive after completing a period of after two years of ineligibility.
